The key conclusions drawn from the 2015 Chichester Cycle Forum meetings were:

  • There is no clear pathway for people promoting a scheme to get even to the first step of a feasibility study
  • Far too little is being spent on cycling infrastructure as a proportion of the total roads budget
  • Air quality will only improve when there is a conscious switch to cycling
  • Strategy and implementation of cycling schemes is a major concern
  • Cycling infrastructure needs to be of a much higher standard
  • Cycling needs to be seen as a valid means of transport
  • Dedicated lanes that are physically separated are required
  • Routes must be continuous on both sides of the road
  • Cycle routes need to be properly maintained
